Father and Son os the best yet. It captures the sense of wonderment every time a father looks at his child. - Sonia Benster, The Children's Bookshop
This is a clever and beautifully told version of the biblical story, which really makes you think. Fabian Negrin's magical, dreamlike illustrations of angels sleeping under the twinkling stars and exotic birds flying through pale coloured skies, are reminiscent in places of Chagall. A truly wonderful picture book which deserves a place as a work of art. - Carousel
